Man United confirm Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen injuries

Man United suffer ANOTHER injury blow as Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen are both ruled out of action after weekend win… but there is hope the Danish striker will be fit before the end of November

  • The club confirmed both players were dealing with injuries from the weekend
  • Rasmus Hojlund is dealing with a muscle injury while Eriksen injured his knee
  • Man Utd are NOT good enough to have a ball-playing keeper – It’s All Coming Up

Manchester United  have confirmed both Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund are battling injuries after puling out of Denmark’s squad for their upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

Hojlund and Eriksen picked up their injuries during United’s Premier League fixture against Luton – which the Red Devils ended up winning 1-0 thanks to a goal from Victor Lindelof in the 59th minute.

United have now issued an update on the condition of the two first-team players and revealed Eriksen has a knee injury while Hojlund is suffering from a muscle strain.

An official statement on the club’s website stated: “Christian has a knee injury that is set to keep him out for around a month, while striker Rasmus suffered a muscle strain. It is hoped he will return before the end of November.”

The blow will be of concern to United manager Erik ten Hag who has relied on both players in recent games, with Hojlund the figurehead of his attack.

Similarly, Eriksen has started the club’s last four matches in all competitions but now appears set for an extended period out of action until December at the earliest.

Hojlund might be available for United’s first game back after the international break against Everton on November 26 before travelling to face Galatasaray in the Champions League three days later.

Hojlund will be eager to return to action as quick as possible after making an explosive start in the Champions League for the Red Devils scoring five goals in four games.

However, he is yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League and might now have a wait on his hands to break his goal drought in the top-flight – after making nine appearances to date.

His absence could hand Anthony Martial a chance to start his first top-flight match since Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over the Red Devils at the start of September, however, his appearances haven’t always been welcomed by supporters.

Eriksen’s injury could also pave a way into a starting role for Mason Mount who has struggled for consistent minutes since joining in a £60m summer transfer from Chelsea.

Mount has been limited to substitute appearances in recent matches with Ten Hag still attempting to find a settled midfield after difficulties this season.

The injured duo join a growing list of absentees with Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Jonny Evans, Casemiro and Amad all currently injured.
